Summary

Clashes of Wills is a collection of essays that explore the great confrontations of the United States since 1877, looking at eleven areas of controversy that are part of today's news, but whose sources lie in the past. By focusing on well-known people who represent these issues, the book creates stories that are selective, focused, and coherent, to paint a portrait of the United States in the past century and a half.
